Service on Defendant through Facebook Permitted – S.D.N.Y.


Service through Facebook allowed by a Federal Judge in New York.

As the digital world makes everyone so easily connected, federal courts throughout the United States are making service of legal documents through electronic means more common.  For over ten years, federal courts have started feeling more comfortable with service by email, upon certain circumstances.  It was only a matter of time that this view would expand to other social networking sites like Facebook.

In FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION, Plaintiff, v. PCCARE247 INC., et al., Defendants., No. 12 Civ. 7189 (PAE), pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, the Court took such a step in an international case.
